Careers to aspire to off the top of my head? Tom Hanks, Leonard Nimoy, Shatner, all played hot guys when they were younger and aged into character actors. Tom Hanks even cross-dressed when he was young and did stupid silly roles and now is know as a serious actor. The Dogulas family does it well, John Cusack too. Jeff Goldbulm has a great career to aspire too. The problem is Ben’s constant role, which the nannies say doesn’t exist, is that of the broken man that women aspire to fix. That’s a good role to play in your 30’s but starts to get dated in your 40’s. In your 40’s you move into father roles, power figure roles, people that have their lives together. Women looking for men in their 40’s want men with their life together. Movies exist to sell fantasy. Women want the fantasy that they can have the men in the movie, and no one wants a damaged 40’s as a love interest. That’s why Doctor Strange will have a love interest in this movie. The other fantasy that can sell is happily ever after. And for the record, I don’t hate Ben. I dislike the mess his agents and Karon have made of his career. I also don’t hate Sophie. To hate her would require I think about her for more than 5 seconds. Also hate is intense dislike for someone or something. I’d have to have feeling and intense emotions about Sophie to hate her. I DGAF about her. She just happens to be a bit player in this little drama that is going on. 

Diversionary rhetoric won’t get you anywhere with us, we know that Sophie’s a key instrument of his enemies. Through her they have caused more than a “bit” of damage. She is to Benedict what fellow SoHoe Amber Heard is to Johnny Depp. Dangerous to his person, toxic AF and the kiss of death to his career. That’s pretty hateful if you ask me. You know it as well as I do, so stop acting stupid. She and the other hangers-on (Dollar General Team included) need to be gotten rid of, immediately. Nothing will change for the better until that happens, so get to it 😠! As an aside, haven’t you learned anything? Trying to stuff Benedict into a generic PR box back in 2014 is what ruined his brand and his job prospects. Leads don’t all have to conform to a set pattern to make a film successful. It’s your insistence on perpetuating stereotypes, your outdated and formulaic mindset that has hurt actors like him as well as your industry. People are tired of seeing the same old and for good reason. Ford, Edison, Wynne weren’t “broken men”, all of those characters had relatively functional family lives. Benedict can play everymen well but then again so can half of Hollywood. If his appearance and acting style is better suited to quirkier roles why insist on treating him like Brad Pitt?

PS: Doctor Strange is nominally married to the sorceress Clea in the comics but their relationship is rather…open to put it mildly.

I have met Karon a few times when I was a fan of Eddie Izzard and she was or still is his PR. I met her first in 2007, she dressed exactly the same, google Eddie Izzard and Karon you’ll see… She is not so friendly. Saw her at the Bafta red carpet in 2008, yelled at her until she looked around (everyone was yelling as they do…) and when she looked over I waved, and she looked at me like I was a shitstain on her shoe. Saw her last in 2012 in Paris and she did recognize me but I did not talk

Doesn’t she also rep Helena Bonham Carter? No unnecessary drama there so who paid Karon OTDL to drop the ball on Benedict? FFS she’s punted it down Coronation Street ever since the fauxmance began!

You’ve seen her initial contract with Weinstein? Do you have a copy? Would love to see that!

Not the contract, though we were told that UTA was also heavily involved. Both they and Weinstein saw it as a way to rebrand Benedict so that he would be more appealing to Academy voters. From a marketing standpoint that was the worst idea ever though because his own unique brand is precisely what had made him popular! Anyhow, what we did see was a copy of the list that SoFail was hired from and her fee. 30K is steep for a Z-Lister but we figured it wasn’t merely for “modeling” seeing as how she’s a known escort. Agencies like MC2 and Kruger Cowne are notorious for doubling as sex brokers OTDL.

Cool idea but it also sounds like a veiled threat on behalf of the Beeb. Holmesboy dun fucked up…or was it Karon? We got Sherlock articles leading all the way up to the 10 year anniversary, then nothing? This degree of unprofessionalism isn’t Benedict’s style but it is hers, especially if she got told off. I figured Karon sold out to Team Soso ever since I saw this. This type of PR sabotage must never be tolerated again.

By throwing all scruples out the window and gullible clients under the bus? By assigning A-List talent to some overglorified intern while charging them full rate? By OKing some talentless hooker with a penchant for blackmail as RCGF? By making backroom deals with a fucking cult like the Church of Scientology? Tell me what you talk about and I’ll tell you what you are lacking. This reminds me of when Harvey Weinstein had to go on the Graham Norton Show for damage control. No wonder that PR Agent at that TWC Oscar party Ben went to called them second-rate, she took one look at SoFail and said she saw a disaster in the making. How right she was…

Oh and Jeremy? This shit again?

You too need to stop enabling SoFail. Y’all greenlighted BOGO branding at the start of the ShamWow and it bombed. The public is only interested in your actual A-List client not in some parched non-entity who does nothing but detract from his brand. I guess UTA wants to get gobbled up by CAA or WME. They’re sure asking for it…

These ‘red-headed’ steps are just plain stupid any more.
Will they at least realize, NOW? that almost ANYONE with a fee(i.e. 💲💶💲💷💰💴💰💸💶💲💳💲) can join IMDB Pro and put ANYTHING they want on any page.
*hint hint*Even The Fail has stopped saying there are three kids.*hint hint*
Ben has done more commercials then I can count and has even done a remake of of an old play by Dudley Moore way back in 1993 before most of the steps weren’t even kindling. You can by it on Amazon or for free if you have Audible. I have heard it before and great when you get bored in the house. I might re-listen to it later. I own a copy. I like Dudley Moore and I always give remakes a shot.

Hey, they are just taking cues from Zero and fluffing EVERYONE’S resumes

Erm, they already rep and handle contracts for Benedict’s voice-overs. WTF do you think Penguins of Madagascar and The Grinch were all about? Can we all agree that he needs to fire his entire Dollar General team? God knows he should have jumped ship along with Billy Lazarus!

Not only has Karon never worked for UTA, she started her own company in 2004. Also, agents and publicists aren’t the same job. But don’t give up, I’m sure you and Aeltrileaf will get something right eventually. Even if takes more than 5 years.

gatorfisch:

That was a nonny…but thanks for clearing it up for everyone.

We’ve certainly got it right now so you can go fuck yourself. In fact? We’ve been right about a lot of things that certain people would have preferred to keep under wraps. Like the fact that Billy Lazarus jumped ship leaving his A-List client stranded with an incompetent rookie. Too bad! Did we ever say that Karon Maskill worked for UTA? No because that information is publicly available. We’ve always known that she works as an independent Publicist based out of the UK. Just like we knew that Benedict had two Talent Agents, Billy Lazarus @ UTA and John Grant @ CVGG. Managers, Publicists and PR firms (like Sunshine Sachs and 5W) work for clients in tandem with Talent Agencies. All of them are involved and thus liable when it comes to fauxmances…

PS: Y’all haven’t gotten anything right for the last 6 years despite being paid.

Do you seriously think that Disney would send Ben warnings through clickbait articles? It’s the exact same one they put out to say he was renegotiating his contrat for DS2. For someone claiming to be so smart, you sure are stupid af.

gatorfisch:

Sigh. They would, for two reasons:

1) He’s ignored their private threats, so they feel the need to be a little more overt

2) they are testing the waters and warning fans this might be it for him.

PR plant OP sure is a fucking idiot. The Rat is escalating their complaint by making certain details public in order to embarrass and pressure UTA etc into compliance. They are also letting everyone (especially interlopers) know that they mean business:” If the actor does not sign an extension beyond Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness, a source told We Got This Covered that Marvel already has a backup plan in mind.“ TRANSLATION: We’d like to keep Benedict onboard but if he’s more trouble than he’s worth we won’t, no skin off our backs.

gatorfisch:

Well, there’s the Rat’s answer to the blurbs UTA etc put out this past week. Blurbs implying that BC is irreplaceable and that Marvel is willing to bend over backwards to accommodate him. The underlying message however is if you want him, you have to go through us (UTA). Methinks UTA doesn’t want to play ball with the Rat because their PR damage control plan only extends to Benedict. UTA (and SoFail) won’t look too hot once their gross mishandling of the ShamWow comes out. It could cost them clients at a time when they really can’t afford it. If the Rat were to lock him into a second contract past 2021 it may not be through UTA anymore and they don’t like that at all…

If my theory is correct? Then the Rat is right to be pissed because UTA is totally out of line. Are they taking Benedict’s LT interests and his well-being into account? No.

Okay, so a few of us have been wracking our brains, trying to figure out why Adam might have betrayed Benedict, and someone mentioned….what if Adam joined Scientology?

Remember how chummy he was with UTA, which has been publicly accused of trying to lure clients to Scientology? Remember that weird article out of nowhere that talked about Scientology trying to recruit Benedict? What better way than to recruit his bestie and business partner FIRST?

CoS definitely has some sort of inside deal with UTA and AA kisses their ass so I wouldn’t doubt it which would make him doubly compromised. They may have settled on him after BC refused to join. AA has already proven that he’s a ruthless social climber. He’d convert to Mormonism if it suited his interests…

Death The Kid on Twitter

Because the impeachment circus ratings are going down and MSM is desperate. Danny Kaye lookalike Noah Feldman needed moar hype, so they attached his name to Benedict…which does the latter no favors. Benedict Cumberbatch, a gentile who has been victimized by DNC darlings like Harvey Weinstein. This is a dangerous and ill-advised PR move, way too political. Given how disastrously this will all end it can’t be good for anyone associated with it. Which agency green lighted this nonsense? Let me guess…

Erm, I can’t think of anyone that has accused BC of being misogynistic? But this looks more like clumsy damage control on behalf of Adam (SM) and/or UTA. It’s just like them to toss some moldy CopyPasta from mid May of last year! Oh and another thing, I hate to break it to y’all but white chicks really aren’t at a huge disadvantage. If SunnyMarch wants to be truly inclusive as per London demographics? Then about 40% of their staff should be POC or they are full of shit. Sorry, it just had to be said…

Oh well done Barry, is this shout-out supposed to be some belated PR ‘Thank You’ for this BS? Thanks to that Ben missed his Shakespeare 500th Anniversary Festival rehearsals and his part was effectively cut, that was kind of a big deal. I strongly suspect that UTA was currying favor with the then POTUS as well. Ben, you yourself said, “Fuck the politicians.” so you need to take your own advice from now on. Avoid them as much as possible, remember how things went with Red Ed and Obummer. Instead of James Bond you’re more like Johnny English…just don’t.
